Taylorville Mayor Shares One of His Goals for 2024

Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry spoke on one of his goals for the city in the 2024 year, which is to demolish and create new space on the blighted properties in Taylorville. The Taylorville City Council has recently bought abandoned and broken down properties in the city to clear the land and make a fresh plot for the next Taylorville Resident.

The Mayor says he will begin by gathering a list of addresses that need to be handled by the city, and with two properties slated to be demolished, the city has a head start on their 2024 goals.


Mayor Barry mentions the Taylorville Building Trades Class that has constructed three homes after restarting the program and these fresh plots of land could provide new opportunities for the young trades-people.


The Mayor hopes that positive actions like these create better outcomes for current community members, future Taylorville residents, and even the students who will have their skills utilized in the construction of the new homes.

Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry appeared as a guest on the WTIM Morning Show.
